Our work on resilience and humanitarian response

BBC Media Action uses media and communication to increase resilience and improve humanitarian responses. In particular we aim to increase people’s ability to secure food and water, improve their economic security and opportunities, reduce their risk to disaster, and increase their ability to survive and cope with humanitarian emergencies. Media and communication can help build the resilience of people vulnerable to shocks and long-term trends by providing information, by changing attitudes towards risk and innovation, by supporting dialogue that will facilitate positive change and by encouraging greater accountability in service provision and policy making.
